1.) Free MSN Hotmail accounts created subsequent to Sept. 24, 2004 can't be
used with MS Outlook Express.

2.) Free MSN Hotmail accounts created prior to Sept. 24, 2004 can't be used
with MS Outlook Express.

3.) Free MSN Hotmail accounts created prior to Sept. 24, 2004, and
configured for access with MS Outlook Express prior to Sept. 24, 2004 can
continue to be accessed with MS Outlook Express until MSN decides
otherwise.

4.) All MSN Hotmail Plus accounts, which cost $19.95US per year, can be
configured to use MS Outlook Express.

P.S. I see my your headers that you use MS Outlook Express as your news
reader:

X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.2180

Did you know that you hit the "Reply" (to Sender) button instead of the
"Reply Group" button? Was that your intention? Every news client that I
have used, except MS Outlook Express and Mozilla Thunderbird, has a
keyboard shortcut for creating a "Followup" message, or "Reply Group"
function:

Forté Free Agent (and, presumably, the paid version), XNews, Super Gravity,
and 40tude Dialog (which I am currently using) all start a followup article
by tapping the 'F' key.

I consider the placement of the buttons in MSOE to be problematic, though
you could use the MSOE Customize feature to separate the buttons, making
such an error less likely.

If it was intentional, then it was somewhat misdirected; I did not need to
learn about the MSN Hotmail policies WRT MSOE, I already know them.
